  • WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -Montel Harris carried 36 times for 183 yards and all three of Boston College's touchdowns in a 23-13 ACC victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.

    Harris, who scored on 26-, 3- and 1-yard runs, surpassed former North Carolina star Amos Lawrence as the conference's most prolific rusher through his junior season. Harris has rushed for 3,377 yards in three seasons; Lawrence had 3,273.

    His first touchdown for the Eagles (4-5, 2-4) came two plays after Luke Kuechly intercepted a pass by Tanner Price, the first of four he threw, at the 35 of the Demon Deacons (2-7, 1-5).

    Wake Forest settled for a 37-yard Jimmy Newman field goal after an 80-yard drive that stalled at the Boston College 19. The Eagles answered with a 76-yard touchdown drive that made it 14-3.

    Wake Forest's only touchdown came with 9:20 left on wide receiver Marshall Williams' 41-yard pass to Chris Givens.
